I was out at a pond to try my luck. I had time to get out, but I did not take a lot of time to grab everything. It is a fairly long hike into the pond, so I only grabbed two fly rods, the fish basket and two boxes of flies in a fanny pack. I did not take my vest as I was wearing a fairly heavy coat. The wind was blowing about 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. The temperature was about 45 degrees. Wind chill was not real fun.
